Dali Convert - Professional Media Conversion

Dali Convert

- is designed for high-volume, high-fidelity media conversion. The user interface was designed for smooth and logical handling - even when dealing with thousands of source clips and multiple projects


While Dali Convert was built originally for converting video formats, it is also well-versed in audio conversions, 5.1 Surround Sound processing, clip joining - plus comes complete with Waveform, RGB Parade, Vectorscope and Histogram scopes for detailed analyses of on-location video


Also included are tools for anamorphic shooters, LOG color, cropping and re-scaling, apply 3d LUTs and audio conversions and re-sampling

Now includes the new Clip Welder codec selection that will merge together all clips in the Media Pool into one video clip. Works great with the Dali Trimmer Tool - or for joining clips together quickly for a demo reel

Works with most any format or resolution


Use the new Directory Watch Mode for automating your conversions from end-to-end.

Take Control Of Time

PTS speed functions

- slow or fast motion made simple - Dalii Convert provides speed / PTS functions (presentation time stamp) for super-smooth slow motion or up to 20x speedup

Dali Convert also provides the ability to change framerates with proper audio rendering plus provides drop-frame features for changing 50 & 60 fps footage to 30, 25 or 24fps


Use the PTS function to simulate time-lapse photography from video by using the 10x or 20x speed-up options. Use the slowest shutter speed available when shooting video to provide motion blur associated with time-lapse sequences


Dali Convert also gives you control over video timecode - set a starting timecode for a series of clips in the Media Pool and Dali Convert will calculate timecode for all of the clips in the batch automatically. It can also pass through native timecode (contained in a video clip) - or derive timecode from file creation times when no native timecode is present


(Below - slow-motion from 120fps source)

Take Control Of Color

Color accuracy is critical to professional production pipelines and Dali Convert will maintain high color fidelity throughout most formats and conversions

Dali Convert has had the benefit of a long-term code base and several iterations of professional product including the popular AWPro Suite of conversion utilities and has specialized in producing the most color-accurate conversions possible


Dali Convert auto-detects the luma range of your clips (Rec 709 or Full-range) so converted files will actually contain the extended range of data. This means that the extra Luma range information is not lost by the conversion process (as in other conversions)


Dali Convert brings accurate color rendition to image sequences too - whether generating a sequence or converting an image sequence into video, V4 maintains high color fidelity throughout conversions
